We take a look at the success of all 25 Liverpool signings made by Brendan Rodgers.
Since Liverpool were dumped out of the Champions League by Swiss champions FC Basel at Anfield on Tuesday, there has been plenty of media inquests into Brendan Rodgers’ record as manager – particularly his work in the transfer market, with the Northern Irishman having been criticised for the poor signings brought into the club.
Is this really true, however? We’ve taken a look at all 25 senior signings of the Rodgers era to find out…
Fabio Borini (AS Roma, £10.4m, 4/10) – Rodgers’ first signing was a player that he knows well, but Borini’s best performance signing signing for Liverpool have been whilst on loan at Sunderland.
Joe Allen (Swansea City, £15m, 6/10) – To be fair to Allen, he is a useful player and a neat midfielder – but the huge fee paid has to be taken into consideration.
